Sadness Of The Soul

What Will Tomorrow Bring ?

Another uncertainty that we can not trust

Filled by so many emotions that make my stomach curl

Like a pool of spoiled milk foul and nasty

A dreary day all wet and uncomfortable

So chilling even the slightest sign of weakness my body shows in every muscle as they begin to ache

My heart wrenching with my pulse in deep dispair

I can feel my neck muscles tighten as if an a noose had been pulled tight

To only sink deep in my sorrows from past failures and wrong doings

A shadow cast over my the corner of the room

To remind me of the overbearing hardship and loss of the past that has creeped into my unconscious

As my mind is muddled with scattered thoughts and repressed memories

My teeth clenched tight holding back the pain from a broken tooth exposed to the harshness of the world

I can not pull myself for the depths of my fears that overwhelm my body into it's current feeble condition

The pearcing of my eyes as they squint into the light that is to bright

A two day stubble swollows up my face only to reveal my dark sinister eyes

Intently fixed on the blurred vision of the pain that can not be heard

Even a moment of silence is filled with never ending screams of madness from another place and time

Where is the reason ?

Why do we ponder the the doomed presence of a forgotten tomorrow

These trival times are graced by my bitten lip only seconds ago where the blood still flows

Lifes annnoying sounds just drown out the horrors I speak

ill fated and life jaded by enemies I could not know

There lies no friends only foes

Dear Dream On. This is dramatically sad and describes it vividly, moving the reader through the anguish it memorializes. Perhaps it's a needed inward view that helps sort out the feelings and details. Or perhaps it's a writer's view of how those feelings and details would be if they were real.

Either way - I congratulate you being able to describe them. The only sentence on which I'm inclined to comment, because it involves a basic reality I deeply know; and it's your first sentence, almost the premise of the poem.

"Another uncertainty that we can not trust" . . .

LIFE IS UNCERTAIN. It's what makes it be alive. Were it certain, it would be static, unchanging; in other words, NOT life, but - death.

So - Knowing and accepting this reality is the first step to being at home with it, for - after all - we ARE alive, hallelujah! and we like it that way, right?

OK, - once we know things will change despite our best-laid plans and desires, we can actually embrace the changes; ie: trust them, if you will. We can begin to see the OPPORTUNITIES that are opened or to which paths lead out of the very uncertain changes which we'd have avoided if we could have -- and missed the unknown opportunities in them.

Sure -- it does make one's stomach curl and ache when it seems that things are out to get us, when - really - perhaps all it is that we are being opportunities t GET onto otherwise hidden possibilities. 'Cause possibilities only arrive as what isn't already fact - in other words, uncertainties and different turns of events. Change. It's the stuff of life.

If we fight LIFE, what are we doing? Well, that's not rocket science! :-)

It's a really good expression and poem, my friend! wow!

Amazing poem..!!!! You just get better and better each time you write.

This one was brilliant , even though it hurt me to read.

Life is not as it should be , since people donĀ“t behave as they should, . At least.... not many of them.

You are a gem.
